Journey to the musical center of the beehive

(Modern Farmer) Bioni Samp’s music blends recordings of honey bees buzzing and humming with electronic music. Samp records bees using a digital recorder attached to a special frame he made with microphones. He has managed to isolate the sounds of different bees – queens, drones and workers. The result is a wall of sound, which Samp hopes will make people think about their relationship with nature.
